I analyze your best colors to bring out your own personal glow.


I received a request from a reader to basically confirm a previous analysis that she is an Autumn. Here is her comment:

Dear Gem

It was a pleasure to read your blog. I wonder if you could verify my season.
I was catergorised by Lora Aleksander as a warm autumn ( I am biracial – father Sudanese m mother Polish ).I have made several pictures in the colours from my swatches and in white,black and burgundy, which are not my colours. I believe that Lora is rigt in her judgement, I just cannot see anything that these colours give to my appearance.
I need an objective opinion.

Best regards


Let’s take a look at the photos she sent in:

Almost immediately, I can confirm her previous analysis. Katarzyna is indeed an Autumn. The black washes her out completely. The coral gives her a sparkling glow, a healthy deep tan appears in her skin. The red is flattering on her as well, as it is not a true, bright, fire-engine red but a more muted red. Katarzyna, I recommend you include some nice golden yellows, medium-to-deep browns, deep burnt oranges, and some muted greens in your wardrobe to really bring out your lovely skin. Thank you for reading and writing to me!
